French deny terrorists talks
PARIS (AP)-The French
government yesterday branded as
fiction reports it struck a truce with
Middle Eastern bombers who
terrorized Paris, and it denied that
France planned to exchange arms
for Syrian help in the anti-terrorist
Denis Baudouin, spokesman for
Premier Jacques Chirac, acknow-
cdged that Syria has been
cooperating with France in an effort
*o put an end to the terror
campaign, which killed 10 people
and hurt 162 in the French capital
Baudouin stressed, however, that
there has been "no contact, no
negotiations with the terrorists."
A group calling itself the
Committee of Solidarity with Arab
and Middle East Political Prisoners
claimed responsibility for the five
bombings between Sept. 8-17. It
demanded the release of Georges
Ibrahim Abdallah and two other
Middle Eastern men imprisoned in
The newspaper Le Monde
reported Wednesday that Syria
helped obtain a truce in the
bombings and that the brothers of
Abdallah, presumed leader of the
Lebanese Armed Revolutionary
Factions, agreed to suspend their
attacks until February 1987, after
being threatened by Syrian security
Abdallah is serving a four-year
term for possessing arms and false
papers. He is expected to go on
trial in February for complicity in
the 1982 murders of an American
military attache and an Israeli
diplomat in Paris.
Asked about the Le Monde
report, Baudouin said: "That's
fiction and it has never been a
question of (making) a truce that
would have been paid for in one
way or another, either by freeing
Mr. Abdallah...or, secondly, in the
financial sphere and in the sphere of
armaments. We categorically deny

Gorbachev plans to visit
Latin American nations
WASHINGTON-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev is planning to
visit Latin America, apparently in an attempt to penetrate peacefully
an area where the United States has long been the dominant influence,
administration officials say.
The Soviet Communist Party General plans to visit Cuba,
Moscow's closest ally in the hemisphere, and also is expected to
become the first Soviet leader ever to travel to Mexico, Argentina and
Brazil, the officials said. The trip, tentatively set for next spring, may
include other South American countries as well.
Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze visited Mexico City
three weeks ago and laid the groundwork for the Soviet-Mexican
summit, according to the officials, who insisted on anonymity.
Some officials described the prospective visit to Mexico as a
normal development in relations between the two countries. They
said Mexico has long been interested in expanding its diplomatic
horizons and that three previous Mexican presidents have visited
Trade deficit keeps shrinking
WASHINGTON-The nation's merchandise trade deficit registered
a slight improvement in September, shrinking to $12.6 billion from
$13.3 billion in the previous month, the government reported
Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldrige said the report was evidence
"that we have turned the corner on the trade deficit."
Private analysts agreed that improvements-due largely to lower
imports of manufactured goods, including automoblies from
Japan-was welcome news. But some cautioned that it was not
necessarily a sign of the long-awaited turnaround in trade accounts.
The Commerce Department said imports feel by 2.7 percent to
$30.1 billion in September, while exports dipped by 0.5 percent to
It was the third month in a row the trade deficit has decreased.
In a seperate but related report, the Labor Department said prices of
goods imported into the United States rose 0.7 percent from June to
September, following declines in the previous two quarters.
In all, the report said, prices of non-petroleum imports have
advanced 10.2 percent since September1985.
Bailey to serve life sentence
HOWELL, Mich.-A judge yesterday called Ronald Bailey a "cold,
calculated predator," then sentenced the suburban Detroit man to life in
prison without parole for the kidnapping and murder of 13-year-old
Bailey, 27, of Livonia was convicted last month of first-degree
murder and kidnapping in the September 1985 death of the Livingston
"You are responsible," Livingston Circuit Judge Stanley Latreille
,told Bailey as he stood before the judge for sentencing. "You may
have impulses, but you chose to do evil.
"You're a cold, calculated predator. You made the choice to kill.
You'll never walk the streets again."
Under Michigan law, first-degree murder carries a mandatory
sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.
The judge also sentenced Bailey to 65-100 years in prison for
kidnapping. He asked that Bailey be segregated from other prisoners
and receive mental treatment.
Bailey also faces trail Nov. 12-in Wayne County Curcuit Court on
first-degree murder charges in the July 1984 abduction-slaying of 14-
year-old Kenneth Myers of Ferndale.
House speaker blasts Reagan
House Speaker Thomas O'Neill making his own last hurrah before
retiring, yesterday counterpunched President Reagan's attacks on him
saying "the truth is frequently casualty in the heat of an election
Reagan, meanwhile, headed west through Colorado and Nevada as
part of his week-long drive to boost Republicans in tight Senate races.
In Alabama, the chaotic three-way race for governor calmed a bit
with Attorney General Charlie Graddick's decision to give up his
_ faltering write-in campaign, leaving the field to fellow Democrats Bill
Baxley and Guy Hunt.
O'Niell (D-Mass.) used an appearance. before the Wisconsin Board
of Education in Milwaukee to respond to Reagan's campaign pitch of
recent weeks against congressional Democrats, O'Neill in particular.
Pope instructs bishops to
oppose homosexual views
VATICAN CITY-The Vatican instructed bishops yesterday to
stamp out pro-homosexual views within the Roman Catholic church
and oppose any attempt to condone homosexuality through legislation
or other means.
In a letter to the bishops approved by Pope John Paul II, it accused
pro-homosexual groups of "deceitful propaganda" and of trying to gain
a foothold in the church, which has 810 million followers.
"Increasing numbers of people, even within the church, are
bringing enormous pressure to bear on the church to accept the
homosexual condition as though it were not disordered and to condone
homosexual activity," the Vatican said.
The Vatican told the bishops and priests not to support
organizations that "seek to undermine the teaching of the church (on
homosexuality), which are ambiguous about it, or which neglect it
